Personal Load Carrying Equipment

Soldiers need to carry ammunition, water, food and protective equipment. They use Personal Load Carrying Equipment (PLCE), a tough, modular system of camouflaged belt, yoke and pouches. (1)Every soldier has a Mark 6 combat helmet that delivers outstanding ballistic protection while allowing the soldier to still wear a respirator, ear defenders, a radio headset- or all three together. (2)Where additional ballistic protection is required, soldiers are issued Enhanced Body Armour, which can be further reinforced with ceramic armour plates.
